Russian President Vladimir Putin was getting ready to play in a Russian hockey game when he was confronted by a CBS reporter. The journalist was hoping to get the Russian President’s reaction to Donald Trump’s firing of F.B.I. Director James Comey.

“Your question looks very funny for me,” Putin said via his interpreter. He later added, “You see I am going to play hockey, with the hockey fans, and I invite you to do the same.”
As an added bonus, here are a bunch of hockey players trying their hardest not to hit Vladimir Putin:

We’re not sure if this was a translation issue or a “no comment” from Putin. Either way, he’s probably very happy with his Trump puppet’s decision.
